    Since Ann buys them by the case from Asia, it undoubtedly cost her at least $3. So the $96 profit sounds very fair. That, plus the sales tax that she won’t turn over to the state.

    Priceless drawing! Lookit Tara in the first frame (the lady has been around). Luann was set up perfectly – see Luann’s smirk in the second frame – before Ann sets the hook in the third frame. And Ann is so hot! I’d like to experience the whole pitch – and then tell her I forgot my wallet…

    All these types of ‘parties’ follow the same sales model….baffle em with…’B. ’ , hide the prices before they make their buying decision, offer them lots of goodies to eat while thinking about their possible purchase, and put the credit card machine on a table close to everyone. Oh…. cue the ultra fancy gift boxes/ bags….throw air kisses as they all leave…and count the cash. Lol.

    I know I often make negative remarks about Luann’s intelligence, but there’s no way she’s this stupid, right? I mean, come on.

    And unless Ann has a “no digital devices” policy (which itself ought to ring a few alarm bells) anyone with a few brain cells ought to be Googling these items while she talks, to find out what information exists on them rather than relying only on Ann’s word. It’s like these people want to be ripped off.

    The room painting arc was just a setup to show that Luann is stupid enough to buy this lingerie.

    And then wear it while she repaints the ceiling.

    This reminds me of the “My Pillow” commercials (don’t know if you get these in your area, but…). Those pillows cost something like $100+ for a pair of them. Of course, one never sees that in their advertising.

    That’s the cue. $99 for good lingerie is much too cheap. (If you don’t believe me, check the price of a similar looking slip from La Perla, which is a good brand but far from the most expensive on the market) Therefore it means it’s worth $5 only.

    Luann could get better quality underwear at a big box, or at the little fashion stores that entrepreneurs are trying to start, with their great ideas (I know and have students who do that great stuff), online (hey I am about to order from Duluth Trading, “bare naked underwear”), but the most important impression that I take from these panels is the expression on the three girls faces, and the pirhana look on Ann’s. Luann’s is totally hooked and naive, while the first panel, Tara has the “are you kidding me” look on her face, while Dez in the second panel has a very discerning look based on what she feels is the real (poor) quality of the so-called discounted lingerie. This ought to set up a good panel on Saturday, but will it be the end or continued next week?

    It tickles me when they say: “Supplies are limited! Call now!”….yet, they play the commercial for a long time (all hours and for weeks and months). Enough time to sell a ‘Kajillion’ of it. Before they bring them to stores.

    Also related to this, when they say: “If you call in the next hour….”, as if there really is a time limit or someone counting the time, similar to the above scenario.

    Pipe and coffee break commentary for today:

    For me, today speaks of a truism about how folks respond to salespeople. And, from my read of things, Greg has drawn the three most common types of responses very, very well:

    1) The “Skeptic” (represented by Tara). I suggest that Tara’s look in the first panel shows that her typical response to sales tactics (especially “hard sell” tactics like Ann’s) is to bristle at the thought of purchasing ANY of the nonsense the seller is hawking. Tara’s jaundiced eye in the first panel speaks volumes. This tends to be my approach to salespeople.

    2) The “Polite and Patient” (represented by Dez). For me, it seems Dez is simply listening to the spiel and is showing patience to Ann. But, she is not being swayed by the diatribe and will make a simple, well educated and well thought out decision.

    3) The “Gullible” (represented by Luann). Some folks seem to be inexplicably captivated and mesmerized by the “hard sell” type tactics that Ann is using. These types can and often are very intelligent and thoughtful in other aspects of life, but they become easily swayed and utterly captivated at the nonsense the seller spews. My wife is and my late father was in this camp.

    Pipe and coffee finished……. out of here for now!

    I remember an online story told by a woman who decided to treat herself to an expensive white silk bra & panty set. According to her worth every penny. She even bought special soap to handwash them with. However hubby decided to surprise her by doing the laundry while she was out. Apparently he can’t read labels that say “Hand wash only.” He also doesn’t understand the concept of not washing light & dark clothes together. So the expensive white silk undies got washed in the same load with hubby’s jeans. Weren’t very white afterwards and pretty much ruined. She did get him to buy her a new set.

    Graphic notes: I think the comic/cartoon graphic influences have been showing through here! In Panel 3, the setting as Ann slyly regards Luann – and Luann’s expression – is from somewhere, I think – just not sure where just now…

    However, in the earlier strip, where Luann is ‘pampering’ herself with perfume (likely cheap stuff, too) – her whole face is turned up, just like Charlie Brown did when he got an invitation to the Halloween party in ’It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’. There’s just something graphic about it all.

    All that said, DANG!!!! Greg’s artwork is GOOD!!! :)

    If Luann thinks that Ann might be honest, perhaps she ought to imagine how Ann would market this same garment at her next lingerie party if she were honest.

    Ann: “This item is so exclusive that almost the only people who have them are celebrities and royalty.”Customer: “Really, only celebrities and royalty?”Ann: “No, I said ‘almost.’ Just celebrities, royalty, and three students at colleges in the San Diego area.”
